Historic building markerMichilimackinac Court House WPA building marker, from the southwest
In front of the Mackinac Island Courthouse and Police Department building is one of many “incredibly detailed, two-sided oak signs showing scenes of the island’s heritage,” that were hand-carved by WPA artisans. As of 2017 this example, created by J. W. Miximong, is the only remaining marker that is in active use [not housed in a local museum].
